Ocean Engineering

Ocean Engineering is a multidisciplinary engineering field aimed at solving engineering problems associated with working in the ocean environment and wisely exploring and harnessing the ocean’s resources. Ocean engineers design, build, operate and maintain ships, offshore structures and ocean technologies as diverse as aircraft carriers, submarines, sailboats, tankers, tugboats, yachts, oil rigs, underwater robots, and acoustic sonar.

Ocean engineers study the oceans to determine the effects of waves, currents, and the saltwater environment on ships and other marine vehicles and structures.

They develop methods and materials to withstand wave forces and protect against corrosion. Ocean engineers are involved in the development and use of manned and remotely operated sub-surface vehicles for deep-sea exploration and resource recovery.

Skills Required :

Personal attributes :

An Ocean Engineer requires a creative, inquisitive and logical mind, the ability to communicate clearly in speech and writing, have sound judgment and qualities of leadership. Communication skills are vital because engineers work with other professionals who may not be engineers. Ocean engineers need to be detail-oriented, creative and have good analytical skills. The design process demands the extensive employment of computer-based information and communication systems. Hence Ocean Engineers should also be well versed in computer software knowledge.
